The Grace Leadership Community upholds the Grace Theological Vision and promotes the health and growth of our Gospel community as we enjoy the presence of God, make disciples, develop Kingdom leaders, and live on mission.
Our leadership model seeks to imitate the oneness of the Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We are ONE leadership community with unique but equal teams that serve different functions yet remain mutually submitted to one another for the sake of the whole. Our life together in leadership community is to reflect the same selfless love and passionate pursuit that characterizes the relationship between the Father, Son and Spirit. This unity is facilitated by our structure, but only happens in relationship with God and one another with Jesus Christ as our Head (John 17:20-23).
The Staff Team
exists to facilitate the daily life and operations of the four activities of Grace: connect, worship, grow, serve. The Staff Team meets together every week for fellowship, prayer, and planning.
The Discipleship Team
exists to make disciples who make disciples. This occurs through our five discipleship environments: Life Groups, Discipleship Huddles, If Tables, The Divine Narrative, and Spiritual Formation Workshops. The Discipleship Team meets twice a month for fellowship, shared learning, planning, and prayer.
The Abbey Council serves among and within Grace (and the Mission 368 family of churches) by providing biblical eldership, overseeing properties and finances, and facilitating humble collaboration for our Mission 368 family of churches. The Abbey Council consists of recognized Kingdom leaders who demonstrate the qualities and qualifications outlined in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9. They meet monthly for fellowship, study, prayer, shared learning, and oversight.
